Runner Automobiles Limited on Monday launched two models of Austrian motorcycle brand KTM — KTM 125 Duke and KTM RC 125 — in Bangladesh.

Runner Automobiles in partnership with global motorcycle brand KTM unveiled the motorcycles at a ceremony held at the Runner Automobiles’ factory at Bhaluka in Mymensingh.

Runner Automobiles managing director and chief executive officer Reazul Chowdhury said, ‘We are excited to introduce KTM Duke and KTM RC in Bangladesh through this official launch event.’

Reazul also said that the company would gradually go for manufacturing KTM motorcycles in the country.

Runner Automobiles director Amid Sakif Khan said that KTM promised to provide an exemplary display of quality assurance and customer services in the days ahead.

KTM 125 Duke has a liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine delivering 14.5 HP Power at 9,250 rpm and 12 Nm torque at 8,000 rpm.

It has an aluminium cylinder with a carbon coating on the inner walls.

One of the most attractive features of the KTM 125 Duke is its ABS system, which prevents the wheel from locking under panic breaking conditions for more safety and stability.

The Duke comes with a first in class TFT display backed by LDR sensor for seamless visibility in both day and night times.

KTM Duke 125 comes in two variants with attractive colour options.

The KTM RC 125 has top class ABS system, attractive muscular fairings and more aggressive aerodynamic style.

Its ‘S’ rated tires provide total assurance of maximum grip, eventually leading to maximum confidence of the rider.

KTM is an Austrian motorcycle company established in 1934.

KTM is popular for their state-of-the-art engineering, design and technology that currently has over 3,000 employees across the world.

Pierer Mobility AG and Bajaj Auto are the current key shareholders of the company, company officials said.
